Peer-Led Team Learning

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) offers an active, engaged learning experience. Students meet with their small group weekly, where a trained PLTL Leader helps guide them through a potentially difficult gateway course.

  • Students can only enroll in PLTL sessions for courses they are currently taking.
  • Courses offering PLTL sessions vary each semester.
  • Space is limited; check PLTL offerings at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters.

Earn better grades and improve study skills — Results at UT Dallas and nationally have shown that students who consistently participate in PLTL sessions attain higher grades and better learning outcomes. They not only reap the benefits of higher engagement with and application of course material, but also connect with peers who have prior knowledge, experience and success in the course.

Meet with the same leader and group for the whole semester — When students learn from other students, they become more adept in managing learning behaviors, approaches to group study, and time. Sessions meet once a week for 1.5 hours with a group of up to eight students and one leader.
